Easy chicken and mangetout noodles

    35 min

    A delectable but oh-so quick chicken and noodle dish. Use your favourite egg noodles, or use regular pasta - farfalle, spaghetti, fusilli or penne work well. The dish could be garnished with toasted peanuts or cashews instead of the sesame seeds.

    Serves: 4 

    • 250g medium egg noodles
    • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
    • 4 skinless chicken breast fillets, diced
    • 200g mangetout, trimmed
    • 4 spring onions, thinly sliced
    • 125ml black bean sauce
    • 4 tablespoons peanut butter
    • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds

    Prep:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Cook the noodles according to packet instructions. Drain well and set aside.
    2. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat until shimmering. Cook and stir the chicken breast until no longer pink, 5 to 8 minutes. Remove from frying pan. Cook and stir the mangetout and spring onions until slightly softened and bright green, 3 to 4 minutes. Reduce heat to medium-low, and stir the black bean sauce and peanut butter into the vegetables until well combined. Stir the chicken and pasta into the vegetable mixture, and allow to heat through, 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds.

    This was a quick, easy, and tasty recipe. As per the other review I would definitely suggest cutting down on the black bean sauce because it was on the salty side. One small change that I made was to add about a half cup of skim milk to the final recipe (with the heat on very low). This made a sauce a bit creamier and more sauce-like.  -  21 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The dish was too salty for our tastes. Next time I will use 1/4 cup or less of the black bean sauce. Other than that, it was quick, easy and flavorful.  -  14 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
